A diplomatic and mostly positive review of Seventh Street Socail in the PiPress (pictured above; and here’s our, uh, different take on it). An interview with Joe Rolle, executive chef at Borough and the upcoming Coup d’etat. The joy of wax-dipping beer bottles at Badger Hill. A preview meal at Lake and Irving (here’s our preview interview with the chef /owners). The St. Paul skyway Turkey to Go has shut its doors. Loose-Wiles Freehouse has shortened its name a bit and set an opening date. A deep dive with Jason DeRusha, food guy. A City Pages pitch on behalf of Birchwood’s Kickstarter (which has, happily, passed the Kickstarter 30 percent wall of doom). Another positive notice for Buddha Kitchen (here’s ours). A look at Green Flash Beer in South Dakota. And a new cheese called Martone from the burgeoning enterprise that is LaClare Farms.
